1. Compare Mindsets 1.0 and 2.0

February 27, 2008


Blog your answers to the exercise, ‘Compare Mindsets 1.0 and 2.0’ in the What is Web 2.0? module, here.

Go through each ‘mindset’ (Lankshear and Knobel (pdf)) line by line, below. Find examples of each mindset, e.g., ‘Product as artefact = book; Product as service = blog site”. Which mindset do you belong to and when? What about your students: which mindset are they most comfortable with? What are the values inherent in each mindset? What about the problems?

Mindset 1.0

Mindset 2.0

The world is appropriately interpreted, understood and responded to in broadly physical industrial terms

The world cannot adequately be interpreted, understood and responded to in physical-industrial terms only

Products as material artifacts

Products as enabling services

Tools for producing

Tools for mediating and relating

Focus on individual intelligence

Focus on collective intelligence

Expertise and authority ‘located’ in individuals and institutions

Expertise and authority are distributed and collective; hybrid experts

Space as enclosed and purpose specific

Space as open, continuous and fluid

Social relations of ‘bookspace’; a stable ‘textual order’

Social relations of emerging ‘digital media space’; texts in change
